Caring not that Paul’s kitchen cabinet is already groaning with the things, the 13th American Music Awards presented him with a special Award of Merit for his achievements over the last 20 years. An audience of 50 million watched the televised ceremony on 27th January. Phil Collins hosted the British segment of the show, beamed by satellite from London’s Hippodrome Club to AMA headquarters in the US. A happy Paul is pictured with Roger Daltrey, Bob Geldof (who received a special Award of Appreciation for Live Aid) and Phil.

The Beatles Diary Volume 2: After The Break-Up 1970-2001

"An updated edition of the best-seller. The story of what happened to the band members, their families and friends after the 1970 break-up is brought right up to date. A fascinating and meticulous piece of Beatles scholarship."

We owe a lot to Keith Badman for the creation of those pages, but you really have to buy this book to get all the details - a day to day chronology of what happened to the four Beatles after the break-up and how their stories intertwined together!
